Tertiary / higher education providers that offer CSP or HELP

In Australia, tertiary education or higher education are provided by public and private universities, private higher education providers, public TAFE (Technical And Further Education) and private Vocational Education and Traning (VET) providers. The latter two focus on VET. Public universities are funded predominantly by the federal government but they are predominantly owned by the state or territory governments. TAFE Institutes or colleges are owned, operated and financed by the various state or territory governments.

To access Commonwealth assistance (either a Commonwealth supported place CSP or a HELP [HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP or VET FEE-HELP] loan), students must be enrolled with an eligible Australian education provider. Eligible providers are categorised as universities, approved private higher education providers, Open Universities Australia (OUA) or an approved Vocational Education and Training (VET) provider.

Universities and CSP, HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP
In Australia, there are public and private universities. These universities are self‑accrediting institutions. This means that they are responsible for determining the curriculum and content for the courses they offer.

Most domestic students undertaking a bachelor degree at a public university are enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) and pay 'student contributions' rather than tuition fees.

Private universities mainly offer fee paying places and must be approved by the Australian Government to offer Commonwealth supported places in 'national priority' areas.

Eligible students studying in a CSP may be able to study now and pay later by using a HECS‑HELP loan to pay their student contributions.

Eligible fee paying students can also study now and pay later by using a FEE‑HELP loan to pay their tuition fees.

Open Universities Australia and FEE-HELP(OUA)

OUA provides distance education to tertiary students. OUA is owned and operated by a consortium of Australian universities and offers tertiary students a chance to undertake higher education study regardless of their ATAR, previous education, age or location.

FEE‑HELP loans are available to eligible students for both undergraduate and postgraduate units of study undertaken through OUA.

Approved private higher education providers that offer FEE-HELP
These are generally privately funded, non‑university higher education providers which offer a range of fee paying courses leading to a higher education award course (generally at the bachelor degree level and above). These private higher education providers have been approved by the Australian Government to offer FEE‑HELP loans to eligible students.
Only a few of these providers have been approved by the Australian Government to offer Commonwealth supported places in 'national priority' areas. For example, Australian Institute of Business (AIB)

Approved VET providers that offer VET FEE‑HELP loans
http://studyassist.gov.a...s/approved-vet-providers

Registered Training Organisations (RTO) that have been approved by the Australian Government to offer VET FEE‑HELP loans to eligible students undertaking higher‑level VET qualifications (diploma, advanced diploma, graduate certificate and graduate diploma courses).
